Announcing a new Meetup for NYC Swedish Language Meetup!

What: June 25th 2010 Midsummer Festival

When: Friday, June 25,[masked]:00 PM

Robert F. Wagner, Jr. Park
Battery Park City
New York, NY 10280

Thank you, Jeffrey, for suggesting a MeetUp at the Midsummer Festival in Battery Park. Everyone I've spoken with agrees that it's a not-to-be-missed annual highlight for the Scandinavian set.

We will meet at 5:00 in Battery Park. As the date draws nearer, I will send out an exact landmark so we can find each other. If anyone has been to the event in the past and would be able to suggest a good place to meet up, that would be really helpful.

Here are the details from the Website:

The annual Swedish Midsummer Festival will once again take place in Battery Park City on the southern tip of Manhattan on June 25, 2010.

At this special celebration, adults and children of all ages will help decorate the midsummer pole, make flower wreaths, play traditional games and dance to authentic fiddle music. Food stands will offer traditional delicacies from New York's finest Swedish restaurants and food purveyors.

Paul Dahlin and fiddlers from the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, Barnklubben Elsa Rix, as well as the Swedish Folkdancers of New York will provide traditional music and folk dance.
